Pumpkins/Gourds can be included in your yard waste bag.  Simply place the pumpkins in the bag with a yard waste sticker and put at the curb on Tuesdays through November.

Why not throw it in the leaf pile on the street?

The leaf pick up is for just that, leaves.  Pumpkins added to the leaves get smashed and create a hazardous condition on the street and make it harder for trucks to sweep up the leaves. Putting pumpkins in the bag ensures they will be composted and returned to the soil.
